As promised yesterday, I'll start cleaning up my code a bit preparing to post it here.


Not First MMS sent via N900 (Fremantle)

I've spent the past few days trying to get MMS to work on the N900.

EDIT: Seems frals has managed to beat me!

After the N900 has been announced. I was saying this to a friend of mine:

[Me] so
[Me] remember our discussion about a Linux powered phone ? ;)
[Me] sorry I convinced you that Linux on phones is a no while I knew we were doing it :)

Yup, thanks to Matan Ziv-Av who did a few improvements and fixes and uploaded him-arabic to maemo extras.

The good part is the addition of the Hebrew keymap (And a few other things).

This post has a bit of my history and emotions. It can be skipped!

The summary is: Katoob has a new maintainer.

multi-gnome-terminal is back to life.

OK. This is the beauty of FOSS. The project has been dead upstream for a while now. It survived until it was removed from lenny.

Now me and 2 other users decided to adapt it. port it or rewrite it in gtk2.

We are having a discussion about the whole situation.

To anyone still using multi-gnome-terminal: Please share with us the features you were actually using. These are the ones more likely to be implemented and no new features will probably be added, maybe help us coding and/or testing or participate in the discussions.


Automatically insert a statement in each function in C++

Submitted by msameer on Fri, 08/02/2008 - 4:16pm

And I thought I'll never do such things again ?
I wanted to insert a debugging statement at the beginning of each function.

for i in *.cc *.c; do sed -i -e 's/\([a-zA-Z0-9 _*:~]*([^).]*) *{\)/\1 \nprintf("%s\\n", __PRETTY_FUNCTION__); /g' $i; done

It can probably be used to insert anything too.

It's dirty but it worked for me. Just keep a backup or make sure the latest code is in any RCS just in case.

It only failed with a function that was commented using C++ style comments "//".
I didn't try it with class methods defined inside header files

It feels like losing a child...

So, today Multi GNOME terminal has been removed from debian as part of the efforts to get rid of gtk 1.x.

I'm neither ranting nor blaming. I'm just expressing my feelings.

I knew before it happened and I acknoledged the removel. It's dead upstream and I don't think it can be easily ported. I've been using this terminal since 4 or 5 years. Let's see if I can live without it. I know there are a lot but this one was lightweight and it was using zvt which was noticeably faster than vte.
This was one of the packages I worked on with "He" as part of the NM T&S and I quite learned a lot from it.
